  • Offer Profile
  • Linq Boats' building and testing facility is located directly to the open IJsselmeer. Before the launch of the boat in January 2009, a rigorous 18 months was spent in the design, build and testing of the various systems and shapes. Two prototypes were built to test the concept, systems and production techniques. The result? An assurance that the CQ-6 will adhere to the highest standards of development with a thoroughly tested product built to stand the test of time.

  • CQ6

  • The new CQ-6 was brought to life with one goal in mind; to bring the most advanced sailing technology together in a compact, well-priced, performance sport-boat. The CQ-6 is easy to handle while at the same time offers the thrills of racing a high-tech canter. With the ability to plane in even the lowest true wind-speeds, its extreme design creates a very stable platform due its wide and powerful hull-form.

  • Technology

  • Extra sail carrying power - Canting Keel
    The extra power generated by the ability to cant the keel bulb to windward eliminates the need for a fourth (or fifth) crewmember on the rail. The complete crew is occupied with actively sailing the boat without a need for extra people on the rail for weight only useful whilst sailing upwind. The keel built from high tensile steel guarantees a fast and safe ride. The keel can be raised using a tripod to make transport and storage very easy.

    Leeway reduction - Single canard
    To reduce the leeway while the keel is canted a single canard is added. This foil generates the side-force necessary to keep the boat sailing upwind with a good Velocity Made Good (VMG). This single canard on the centerline is removable for downwind courses to reduced drag and is easily stored against the cockpit sides using specially designed fittings. The canard is designed using the latest foil analysis software and with carbon reinforcements resulting in an extremely high performance and lightweight foil.

    Aerodynamic optimization - Rotating wing-mast
    The carbon rotating wing-mast is a custom engineered mast tube equipped with synthetic (P.B.O.-fiber) stays. A lot of time has been spent at the aerodynamic optimization between the mast and the sails, creating a rig that acts as a complete unit. The mast is not merely a pole on which to hoist your sails, but a trimming instrument and, aerodynamically-speaking, a part of the airflow, actually BECOMING a part of the sail plan!
    Full control - Twin rudders
    The CQ-6 is equipped with two rudders for optimum control of this powerful boat at various speeds. The rudders are carbon reinforced for optimum weight and minimum flex.

    Weight saving - Light weight construction
    All composite parts are built using the latest in epoxy technology and vacuum bagging techniques. Carbon spars and synthetic rigging save weight aloft, while exotic materials and high strength steel are engineered to create a light weight but economic and efficient structure. The epoxy resin guarantees a durable and long-lasting construction without the tendency to become 'soft' after being pushed hard for a while, as seen frequently in boat using vinylester or polyester resins.

    Aero & Hydrodynamics
    Extensive studies for the hydro- and aerodynamic behavior of the boat and its equipment have been thoroughly carried out, and all spars are designed with FEA-tools to maximize performance while maintaining conservative structural integrity factors.
